Just make sure it doesn't catch you looking at Apple goods - it could just be the last thing you ever do.

Noise is building ahead of Samsung's Unpacked event on March 14th, which is when the Korean firm is thought to reveal the Galaxy S IV.

And now, the NY Times reports the handset could sport an Eye Scrolling feature to prevent outlandish and time-consuming swiping when reading messages and other media, with users making pages move down automatically when they look at the bottom of the screen.

The technology doesn't sound entirely out of the question, given that the Galaxy S III runs Smart Stay, which prevents the phone from sleeping as long as the user is looking at it.

What's more, Samsung has already filed for an Eye Scroll trademark, describing the platform as: "Computer application software having a feature of sensing eye movements and scrolling displays of mobile devices, namely, mobile phones, smartphones and tablet computers according to eye movements; digital cameras; mobile telephones; smartphones; tablet computers."
